BSD Farmers to Families Food Box drive-up a big success


The Batesville School District’s Farmers to Families Food Box Drive-Up on Friday was a big success, according to a BSD spokesperson.

BSD Communications Cooridinator Megan Renihan said the district handed out 800 boxes of assorted foods including fruits, veggies, meats, and dairy products. They were distributed on the Batesville High School campus.

“The boxes had a direct impact to our community, and our students and staff were on the front lines directing traffic, greeting, and helping to load them up in the vehicles,” Renihan said. “This is what Pioneer Nation coming together for a greater cause looks like. We hope these boxes have been a blessing to all who received them, and we will have the opportunity to do it again thanks to Save the Children US.”

The Batesville School District was one of two locations in the state selected by Save the Children to receive the food boxes. They will also have two more drive-ups at an undetermined time.
